Sheri S. Levy has done a fantastic job in writing Seven Days to Goodbye. Her ability to create characters that readers will connect with, relate to, and truly care about is exemplary, and certainly a hallmark of a very skilled author. I am also looking forward to reading more from the very promising author, Sheri S. Levy. I certainly hope that she's hard at work on the second installment of this series as I write!

The story deals with growing up, deciding what's important, and doing hard work for a good purpose. It's a good, clean read with a consistent pace and an interesting message about putting others ahead of oneself. The reading level and subject material are appropriate for middle grade or YA with a lower-than-average reading level.
I read a pre-production version of this book and have since purchased the released version.
This story encompasses the last week of service dog puppy training/raising for Sydney, an Australian Shephard. Trina, a young teenager, is completing Sydney’s final week of training before Sydney completes “finishing school” and is partnered with an individual in need of a service dog. Trina, her family, her best friend Sarah and Sarah’s family, and her friend Hannah spend the week at a beach. This will be Trina's last trip with Sydney, and completion of all of his initial training before he goes back to the service program. During the week, the girls meet new friends, Peyton and Chase who also are staying at the beach front. Throughout the week Trina and her friends confront challenges associated with friendship, clothing selections, jealously, first love and heartache. This summer will truly be memorable on many levels. Ultimately, Trina knows she will have to say goodbye to Sydney, the big question is will she say hello again... Emotionally, can she find room in her heart to welcome another puppy that needs a puppy raiser in preparation for a career as a service dog. Trina’s love for animals shines brightly.
True to the world of puppy raisers and service dog partners, both groups experience times of heartbreak and pure joy. A variety of topics often experienced by middle schoolers and teenagers were touched on within the context of this story. I would love to read a sequel with well-developed characters, a more in-depth exploration of feelings and issues common to the target reader audience. An enjoyable read which I would recommend to animal lovers and those considering becoming a puppy raiser. I’m looking forward to reading more of Ms. Levy’s books.
